Here's the Scoop
North Beach Leather was established by Michael Hoban and Frank Morgan in the mid 1960s as a leather goods store in Los Angeles, California. In 1967 the shop was moved to San Francisco, to the North Beach section of town, hence the name.
North Beach Leather did custom work for celebrities such as Elvis and Elton John. His reputation is said to be the only designer whose clientele is diverse enough to encompass Jacqueline Kennedy, Sinatra, Dolly Parton to Heavy D and Mike Tyson.
His designs are known for their boldness in both color and design. They were also known for their priceyness, as these were quite expensive garments.
